Hanoverian Royal Family
Princess Alexandra of Hanover (German: Alexandra Charlotte Ulrike Maryam Virginia Prinzessin von Hannover (born 20 July 1999 in Vöcklabruck, Upper Austria,) is the only child of Ernst August, Prince of Hanover, and Caroline, Hereditary Princess of Monaco. She was born six months after her parents' marriage.
She is the only one of Princess Caroline's four children who bears any style or title. She is presently fifth in the line of succession to the Monegasque throne. Through her father, she is included in the line of succession to the British throne. However, because the British Act of Settlement declares that no dynast may marry a Roman Catholic and retain a right of succession, her father automatically forfeited his eligibility for the British crown upon his marriage to the Catholic Princess Caroline. However, this has no effect on the rights of Princess Alexandra, because her parents have raised her as a Protestant.
